Tiny Shell Silver Pendant

$49.00

This diminutive silver pendant is modeled on the Calyptraea chinensis, or Chinese Hat snail, whose shell is shaped just like the broad hats worn in East Asia. Ironically, the shells are not found on the beaches of the Pacific or Indian Oceans. They are limited to the Atlantic, Mediterranean, North and Black Seas. The shells range from .5″ in diameter to nearly 2″. The shell in this pendant was molded directly from a small specimen, then backed with a patterned silver base and fused together. If you want to order a chain to go with this pendant, select from the options below or go to our Sterling Chains section for more variety. Note: your handmade piece may vary slightly from the one pictured as no two are exactly alike.
